How it works

How it works

GHIGS is about space!  Do you have some space you don't use, maybe someone else can!  A parking spot you don't use downtown? A locker at University you don't really need?  Why not share it!  The ideas are endless for what can be stored.

Do you need to store something for the winter that you never use but takes up space?  Sports equipment maybe? Why not find someone that has some extra space to store it!

Our mission at GHIGS is to connect people and make the meeting easy and professional!  Our customers renting space have the peace of mind that the person they've connected with are trustworthy and the system used is always going to be there to help! 

Go ahead and think of some space you have and don't really use, maybe make some money on it to help pay the mortgage or bills.  A downstairs closet could potentially be someone's storage for their school textbooks over the summer!  It beats hauling those books back and forth between semesters!

More specifically, here is how it works:

Someone wants to rent space they have.  They sign up with GHIGS and place their free ad!  Photos help, addresses help narrow down customers closer to you (Maybe someone in your own condo building is looking for space!) and write a description of how large the space is and other details.  Then a price can be entered and a term length.  A week, a month? Even a year!  Once a customer contacts them, take the time to get to know the person and get a feel for them.  GHIGS uses PayPal for all transactions, it is by far the safest way to send money on the Internet. Setup your free PayPal account to receive payments and you're done! The customer can start renting your space, payments are tracked and both parties have peace of mind!

Someone wants to find space to rent.  They sign up with GHIGS and browse the ads.  Narrows down easily by city and area, they find something that looks perfect and is a great price!  Make contact with the seller, get to know them since they're the ones that will have your stuff!  If you feel everything is good, go ahead and make the deal!  You've got space!  The transaction is conducted over PayPal and you don't need to setup a PayPal account if you don't want to!  The whole process is tracked so both you and the renter have the peace of mind.

Enjoy and use your imagination! Space is everywhere!
